July 9, 2008 in Seminars and Events
[prMac.com] Philadelphia, PA - The Digital Lifestyle is announcing live video coverage of the Apple iPhone launch, beginning at 7AM ET on Friday, July 11th. However, the site is looking for iPhone fans to ring in the new product before, during, and after their coverage of the U.S. launch.
"We want to mark this big day with reports from all over the world, so if you plan on being in line for an iPhone, we want to know," said Ryan Ritchey, producer of The Digital Lifestyle.
While in-studio coverage will begin at 7AM with some of the first looks at App Store applications, Ritchey said the network can go live anywhere in the world to bring the sites and sounds of other iPhone launches across the globe.
"Anywhere you can get a wifi signal, and have a laptop, we get put you on live. We would love to do segments from New Zealand, for example as the phone goes on sale there first," Ritchey said.
"We also want to help iPhone developers get as much exposure as they can. There will be a lot of 'noise' in the app store with potentially thousands of apps trying to get noticed," Ritchey said.
The coverage will be co-hosted by Ritchey and former Mac Genius Jamie DeGrazio. Those interested in participating live can send an email to Ryan.
The Digital Lifestyle was founded in November 2007 as the only 24-hour online video network dedicated to Apple news, rumors, and lifestyle. The network was created by former Apple employees who bring a unique perspective to current Apple news and rumors.
